Nick Orville was an employee of Anaheim Electronics who was chosen to help maintain the RX-78GP02A Gundam "Physalis" upon its delivery to Torrington Base. Through his connections, he is able to contact Zeon forces lying in wait and let them know of its arrival. Under the cover of wanting to spend time enjoying Earth's natural beauty, Orville secretly rendezvous with Anavel Gato, giving him a Federation lieutenant's uniform and sneaking him inside Torrington Base. It was thanks to Orville that Gato was able to steal the GP02.
Because his involvement with Zeon went undetected, Orville was able to remain at Torrington Base after the raid. Subsequently, he was one of the few Anaheim Electronics employees who volunteered to remain aboard the Albion as it pursued the GP02. The reason for this was likely so he could continue acquiring information about the Gundams and the Federation's operations. However, his cover is blown after South Burning discovers a piece of paper Orville dropped revealing that he was the one who let Gato inside. He escaped in a spare FF-XII Core Fighter II, only to be shot down by a group of Zaku IIs, who realized his escape and subsequent search for Kimberly Base would only lead the Albion to them. It's assumed that he was captured after the base fell.
